Bugs and flowers

When I go out searching for bugs in the garden or the fields, my first choice is always to look at any flowers growing there.

A Long-horned Beetle on a wild flower.
A ladybug/bird and two ants on a rose.
A spider on bouganvilla.
Ants on a wild creeper of somekind.
Three aphids of a rose bud.
An assassin bug on a sunflower. (This is to show Craig how it is done. LOL!!)
A ladybug/bird, ants and aphids.
